About us

WBO is specialized in beauty and modelling events worldwide. 

The delegates who become part of the W B O display those characteristics in their everyday lives.

All Titleholders of the W B O personify the combination of beauty and intelligence which defines the beginning of the 21st Century. In keeping with its global view and position as creator of role models, the W B O has a new corporate structure and enhanced corporate goals.

Since the beginning in 1993 just very few “brands” or entertainment properties reach an over a decade anniversary. World Beauty Organization now is planing and this year organizing the 23rd Top Model of the World pageant.

About 50 Agencies worldwide (national beauty organization and modelling agencies) are producing their own Castings and Show-Events to select a national winner. The winner then is competing in the Top Model of the World Pageant 2016. There is a rich history of bringing together some of the most impressive, beautiful and interesting women and models from many cultures and W B O and there partners helping them to achieve their goals.

That is a heritage unique to this organization. The evolution and expansion of the biggest Model Pageant in the World for Models of age 17-25.

The Top Model of the World has a long national and worldwide tradition.

2016 will mark the 23 edition of the Pageant, which began in 1993 in Miami / USA. For 3 consecutive years it was a fixed place in the annual show-calendar of the USA, produced by the “Globana Group” and its President, the brother of former Tennis Pro, Goran Ivanisevic. In 1996 the pageant went first time outside of the USA and was in Germany and so attracted extensive media worldwide and provided a major opportunity for Sponsors and Partners to showcase their products to the entire world. The last 3 years the Top Model of the World took successfully place in El Gouna (Egypt) and was held last year in the Flagship Hotel in El Gouna as an “Open Air” Production, the Ancient Sands.Over 800 people were attending the Show and international tourists, Families, Relatives from over 25 countries came just to see their daughter, sister, friend who was competing in the World Finale on September 2015

The producer of the Top Model of the World works throughout the year with private enterprises and state and foreign governments to establish the site for each of their Pageants. The city of a country offering the optimal venue and support to the Pageant and the greatest appeal to Pageant viewers is chosen. In the case of the Top Model of the World 2016 we expect again about 50 countries to compete.


Nobody had an idea how successful Top Model of the World Pageant would become in 1993. From a fashion competition, introducing sportswear to the USA, model of the world transformed into an international, annual event with numerous, beautiful and talented young women from around the world. All of them are vying to become a part of Top Model of  theWorld history. Faszinating sites, interesting countries, fully choreographed shows and travel opportunities attracting those ambitious and desireful women to compete. Every ear we have millions of fans watching the Top Model of the World pageant and with the time we were able to evolve the early contest into a powerful, word wide acting organization with the goal to search and look out for the most beautiful women of all continents.
The contestants who are competing in the Top Model of the World Organization are modern, attractive and strong in their characteristics. They are performing excellent and are aware of their careers and their personal goals what they want to achieve in their lives.
